Apple Music: Adding multiple tracks to playlists as one time

HI Serenity, the Queen Guru of Apple Music,

In Apple Music (on Mac/via iTunes) is there a way to quickly select multiple songs and add them to a playlist?

When I was using Spotify, this was a simple as Command Clicking each track from the album I wanted and use dragging them to the playlist. Apple music seems to make me have to click on the ellipse on each separate track for me to add a single track to a playlist and does not allow multiple selections.

I hope that I am missing something.

Yes! The easiest way is to highlight the songs you want, then control-click and select Add to Playlist.

Alternatively, if you turn on the Sidebar (View > Show Sidebar), you can drag those tracks to your chosen playlist.
